I've been strongly drawn to old button collections lately. At an estate sale a couple of weeks ago, I found a delightful baggie of buttons. Here are some of them, washed, and sorted.
Here's one of my favorites (5/8"):
Then, at a garage sale this weekend, I found Buttons. This must be capitalized, because of the quantity. The sale was actually a fun double garage sale, two neighbors on opposite sides of the alley, two garages full of ancient things. In amongst it all....crates full of boxes full of buttons.
I decided on one box each, yellow, red, blue, and green. I dumped them all in the sink to wash.
My darlin' daughter said - How silly looking! I want to take a picture! And I thought - Oh! Me, too! Blog!
So, y'all can thank her for reminding me that I now have a blog for such silly topics. :-)
In amongst the piles of doo-dads, I found these cool things to add to our collection of military medals.
The stars and bar are still attached to bits of garment. They are attached with a tiny screw and nut, not the simple little squeeze back that is more common on lapel pins and such. Pretty cool.
